Yes and No. Sony have rights to the WRC rally through a company called Evolution Studios based in Liverpool UK. Sony have very strong ties with this company but do not own them outright. Currently, the next Generation version of a WRC game is *probably* under development by Evoultion studios and will *probably* feature online play. However - what Sony do not own is complete rights to any Rally game. There are several other competitors on the market such as Codemasters Popular Colin McCrae license. It would be unwise to make a rally game claiming to be an officially sponsored WRC game as that license is owned by Sony/Evolution. That would be a basis for license infringement and you would be likely be sued. However a more generic "rally game" could easily be made with no legal repercussions. (Otherwise similar games of any type would not be possible)
